Both teams are unexpectedly leading the way as the other big hitters keep slipping up.
St Moninna went into the game with 7 wins from 9 and with no draws.
Armagh/Down with 6 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss.
Both teams had 14 points and having home advantage meant Armagh/Down were slight favourites.
Barry Smith is a good quality player and the Moninna pet expert had sharpshooter Shane Durnin on a leash. Smith was on form and took out Durnin who famously beat TJ's A legend Manny Byrne in the singles.
Andrew Mackin was picture perfect when he doubled the Saints lead by beating Shane McVerry. 0-2.
Martin White is a quality player with bags of experience. He was able to freeze out the very talented Oran Keenan and Armagh/Down trailed 3 nil.
Luckily for Darren Mackin he's winning more games than his beloved Man United and it was Mackin that made it a stunning 0-4 when he defeated another talented Armagh/Down player Sean Donnan.
Michael McCormack had a patchy start to the season but he's really hit form in December for St. Moninna. Gerard Foley is steady but McCormack is on fire lately and it was the 'super Mac' that wrapped up the 2 points to make the score a mesmerising 5-0 against their nearest rivals.
Another Mackin, this time John came to the baize. John has come on well this season and he made it 6-0 by beating a fairly decent Ryan Gray.
Conor McQuaid has bags of experience and has a history of winning trophies. It's always a gamble playing him in his preferred position of 7th but so far it's working perfectly. Brendan McCabe was out of his depth and McQuid turned on the style to make it a mind boggling 7-0 away from home.
Dominic Donnelly had a bit of pressure on him to complete the unblemished 8 zip scoreline. Willie Andrews is a really Quality player and a bit of a cult figure in Armagh/Down. Andrews shows his class by keeping the fight going and not throwing in the towel. Andrews win prevented the dreaded whitewash.
The near flawless performance puts Saint Moninna 2 points clear at the top of Division 2 and in prime position for an all out assault for the title.
CWC B took full advantage of Armagh/Down's humiliation to go joint 2nd with the Monaghan Street side.
Sheepbridge B offered very little resistance as CWC hammered their visitors into an early submission.
Chris Cunningham and Cathal Murphy put CWC 2-0 up with wins over Ryan O'Hare and Conan Brannigan.
Sheepbridge looked to have steadied the ship when Darren Donaghy beat Seamus McKeown. 2-1.
It was just a stay of execution though. Raymond Sands then the experienced Tommy Rooney put CWC 4-1 up. John McAvoy and Mark Keenan had no answer for Sheepbridge.
Paul Kelland has been around a while now and he is very at home in Division 2. He had little problems wrapping up the 2 points with a good win over good potter Nathan Hand. 5-1.
Sheepbridge had 2 good players as their final duo and maybe had they played earlier they could have altered the result. Hindsight is a wonderful thing though.
Liam Turley and Gerard Bagnall ooze quality but with Cailum McParland and Paul Kelland having nothing to play for it was no surprise the excellent potting Sheepbridge duo claimed the last 2 frames.
5-3 is a great result for CWC and strangely they have the exact same frames for and against as Armagh/Down who they are joint 2nd with.
If St. Moninna and CWC had easy wins then the same certainly can't be said of Millvale Arms who needed the win to keep within touching distance of the league leaders.
Millvale trailed 2-1 and 3-2 against a Madden's Bar who dreamt of sneaking a point behind Millvale Bar. Madden's were among the favourites to finish bottom of Division 2 but a win here would put them a 1 point behind a Millvale team that are one of the favourites for promotion.
Colly McCann loves his pool and is a really top potter. He put Millvale 1-0 up against a formidable opponent in Decky Cunningham.
Wayne Riley and Kieran Bradley hit back as the visiting Madden's promised an upset. Gary Gibney and Willie Hughes the dissapointed homesters.
Ryan Diamond was in sparkling form and playing Dearbhile Murphy didn't put him off making it 2-2 at the halfway stage.
Decky Campbell is a great wee player and he had Madden's of the verge of a great point when he beat Brendan Hoey to his side 3-2 up.
Killian McDonald is an excellent player and he had a good win over the very experienced Martin Reavey to tie up the scores with just 2 to play.
Ling Agavi had a superb win over Gareth 'Guff' Carroll to put Millvale back in front for the 1st time since the opening frame. 4-3.
Marty McGoldrick was the hero and not for the 1st for Millvale. He's a good tidy cueiest and wins his fair share and in the nerve wrecking final frame he scraped over the line for 2 really hard earned points. Brian Robinson is no world beater and McGoldrick is miles ahead in talent and temperament.
Millvale still remain 3 points from top spot but they know only too well they are very much in the hunt.
Forresters have had the odd terrific draws against the top sides this season but they got humiliating humbled by bottom side Indo B on Thursday night. Forresters have a decent squad but defeats have been far too easy come so far this season.
Indo picked up their 1st win and it was just a walk in the park in this big derby game.
Brendan Flanagan and Denver Jenkins put Indo 2-0 up.
John McClorey beat Margaret Ireland to reduce the arrears to 2-1.
Aidan Griffin and Birdy Conway made it 4-1 in this bottom of the table clash. Colly Rowntree wrapped up Indo's 1st brace of points when he beat Rayme Magee for 5-1.
Hugh McGrath and Ollie White are 2 quality players but their wins for Forresters was too little too late for the hosts as they lost out 5-3 to a superb Indo B.
Indo remain bottom and need to build on this result. As for Foresters they need to take a long hard look at themselves.
Trainor's Bar on Canal Street had a good win over Boyds Bar while Cavern Bar joined TJ's C on 7points when they travelled in to TJ's.
